That doesn't sound right  
I didn't realize until the Penny Arcade post that the avatars in LittleBigPlanet are called "SackPeople." That really sounds like it ought to be an insult or something. Like, "Hey Sephiroth! You're a sack person!" Though i guess that's not really something Sephiroth needs to worry about because other than Cloud no one is going to risk taunting him like that. Anyways, i generally like chibi, but the sack person aesthetic does not seem particularly appealing to me. In fact they look a little creepy, at least to judge by these examples.

I hadn't heard the plural so much as the singular "sack-boy" and "sack-girl" which maybe at least rolls off the tongue a little better?

Anyway, don't dismiss them 'til you've seen them more in motion. They're pretty adorable. Plus the emoting you can do with the tilt sensor, shoulder buttons, and cross pad is pretty great. I've spent far too long just standing around making my sack-purple-pirate do silly poses.

Hmm, I should make a LBP post. Maybe I'll have time after the beta ends while I'm waiting for the retail version to come out...
